12 DAYS - Fly On The Wheel

Earlier this year I came across Fly On The Wheel and their relatively new product, the Skagit Fly Wheel, and thought they were just genius.  This wood and foam device, which is offered in several sizes and configurations, can hold hundreds to thousands of flies, and is perfect for a fly tier's desk, fly shop or outfitter, featured fly tiers at fly fishing shows, or for someone (like me...) who doesn't tie a lot but has a shit-ton of flies and no where to put them.

The Skagit Fly Wheels are made in Sedo Woolley, Washington and are offered in 6", 12", and 18" models and the foam and wood layers are stacked in a way that it makes it perfect for holding a lot of flies that can easily be seen.  The Skagit Fly Wheels turn with the use of the reel handle on top and this is a quality device through and through.  The tops of the Skagit Fly Wheels can be customized easily with a logo, like has been done with these six "Retro Fly Edition" models.

The Skagit Fly Wheel is a great idea and I bet we'll all be seeing more of these at the upcoming fly fishing and fly tying shows this winter as they get a tier's flies off the table and they are certainly easier to be seen.  Fly Shops that are short on space or just want to get flies out of bins are also using these quite a bit as well.  Don't tie at all but have some presentation grade flies in your collection that you'd like to show off, it works for that too.

Today Fly On The Wheel has offered up six Retro Fly Edition 6" Skagit Fly Wheels that were handmade in the shop over the last couple of weeks.
